Monday Round Up (06.21.10)

June 20, 2010

“It’s Monday What Are You Reading” is a weekly event hosted by Sheila that lets you share books you’ve read over the past week and books you have coming up.

Finished: Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by J.K. Rowling (review to come)

Currently reading: Chantel’s Quest for the Enchanted Medallion by Oliver Neubert

Up next: I’m not sure yet, either Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban or a random selection from my tbr pile.

I also posted some thoughts on Anna Karenina, which I finished the week before.

Yes, yes, yes I still have the book ban going on. But you see, I received some rather disappointing news on Monday. Don’t worry, everything’s okay, but the news called for a trip to the bookstore. Just walking in and inhaling that wonderful smell of new books and coffee had a great calming effect on me. Walking out 40 minutes later with a brand new book in hand had an even greater effect!

I picked up Please Forgive Me by Melissa Hill, which I’m thinking will make a great summer read!

What are you reading? Did any new books find their way into your possession?

    Monday Morning Update 49

    I’ve been reading the Black Dagger Brotherhood books for the first time, but I think I’m going to take a break and read a YA (these books are GREAT, but really dark).

    I also take trips to the bookstore or library when I’m upset :)

    Books do have a calming feel to them don’t they? They are like therapy! Hope all is well and have a good week of great reads!

    Nothing like a book to be calmed down and relax with.

    I hope you enjoy your new book, it’s a great experience getting knew one! I finished the Chamber of Secrets this week as well. Im half way through Order of the Phoenix though, so I think Ill finish that off before I get into Prisoner fof Azkaban. Are you doing the Summer at Hogwarts readalong?

    I also am addicted to the smell of books with coffee in the background. Might have to take a book over to the local store just to catch a wiff.

    Enjoy your week.

    I say read Azakaban. It is my favorite of all the Harry Potter books.

    I have no restraint when it comes to buying books. I really need to find some though before I go broke. Have a great week. Chantel’s Quest for the Enchanted Medallion sounds very interesting.

    I have to steer clear of book stores or walk in with cash in hand so I am not tempted to spend more – I know the feeling.

    Here is my Monday!

    I love your taste in books. I am a big fan of both Tolstoy and J.K. Rowling. ;-)

    I just gave you a “versatile blogger” award:

    I loved Harry Potter to the point that after reading the whole series I organized a weekend in Edinburgh
